My name is Rachel Grefke and I am an Environmental major at SUNY Potsdam. I received your contact info. from the PM Environmental website which I had been looking at for my internship coming up in the summer. For my environmental field prep. class I am required to preform an interview on someone in the environmental field and I was hoping you would be willing to allow me to interview you? I should not take long and we can conduct it through email. If you could let me know as soon as possible that would be great! Below I have written down the questions, take your time answering them.
What exactly does your company do?

2012 USGBC LEED for Homes Awards announced at Greenbuild

The projects awarded this year spotlight affordable housing. Another important type awarded was multi-family developments. Cincinnati is lucky to have a perfect example of a Green community in Over-The-Rhine. In 1850 Cincinnati was one of a few cities worldwide in rapid expansion. It might not look it now, but in 1850 it was an example of a very high quality building and transportation system. Thanks to Cincinnati Center City Development Corporation (3CDC) and many other partners, Cincinnati is strengthening the core assets of our urban infrastructure by creating diverse places to live, work and play. Just like the 1850s! Maybe we'll get an award someday from the USGBC.
